Chatt State is unlike any other college in that you have every opportunity to succeed and faculty and students standing with you to ensure that success. There is an abundance of resources such as free tutoring, food pantry, free counseling, active student government, writing center, math center, and many other resources and people to help you find them. There are several great teachers who you can tell the very reason they teach is to help young students learn and succeed in their academic, professional, and even personal careers. There are several great programs, clubs, and even opportunities to study abroad! Chatt state is wonderful in that it also has great scholarships to help you pay for school and to study abroad! It is truly one of a kind and I recommend anyone to earn their associates, earn a certificate, or complete their prerequisites at Chatt State.

So far I have enjoyed my time at Chattanooga State. I really am pleased with the campus and how easy it is to get around. I also enjoy the library and the many resources it offers. I am very thankful for the help I received from the writing center, math lab, chem lab, bio lab, and the anatomy and physiology labs. All of these nice people are there to help you succeed and understand the material. I have enjoyed most of my professors and their willingness to teach material in a way that is not overwhelming. I really appreciate how they care about you as a person too. Most of the people on campus are nice and are willing to help you find a classroom or even strike up a conversation. I'm very thankful to have picked Chattanooga State I'm currently finishing up my Associates of Science degree then moving on to get my certification in Surgical Technology.
I have been a dual enrollment student at Chattanooga State for the last two years. I enjoyed all my classes. Anytime I have had to contact the school with any problems they have been very helpful. All my professors have been super awesome! Overall, my Chattanooga State experience has been wonderful and I am considering attending college there.
